COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - It’s something they’re doing, literally, at Coldwater’s Lincoln Elementary. It’s called the pass through program.Coldwater School Superintendent Dr.Tina Kerr told the Board of Education last night that over the summer, Lincoln teachers said they wanted their building to have more of a free flowing configuration where students could easily pass from one classroom to the next. So, they basically cut out a doorway and three weeks into the new school year, the program has received high marks, allowing the students to work at their own level while kindergarten through third graders take their basic courses together in the same room. Teachers have told Kerr the students have been very respectful of each other and focused on wanting to be better. Kerr also told the Board that tomorrow, she’ll be speaking to a statewide superintendent’s group and will be exposing them to the good things that can happen in education, using Coldwater as an example. Her appearance before the administrators stems from Kerr’s selection as 2012 Michigan Superintendent of the Year.
